Pfas, in the Veneto, among the most serious emergencies for health and the environment
ONE OF the most serious environmental emergencies never addressed, which requires epidemiological studies, and a map of the wells, and the Italian Association of Doctors for the Environment (Isde) has defined the situation as determined in the Veneto region from contamination by Pfas in a press conference from the Room, in which he presented a Position paper with an action plan "for immediate action".

The doctors of the Isde have found that "in the Veneto, in the provinces of Vicenza, Padua and Verona with the contamination by Pfas, the acids used in industrial processes and then spilled for decades in the soil and in the aquifers, is one of the health emergencies and environmental the most serious that our Country has ever faced". Required, continued, "the complete mapping of the private wells, for a National Law to the determination of the Pfas before the sewage sludge is spread on agricultural land as fertilizer, epidemiological studies as well made available to the scientific community and that the limit of Pfas in water is equal to zero."

The Isde also notes that for those who do not autodenunciano the possession of private wells, the Region does not provide any sanction, the analysis is performed at the expense of the owner and in case of overdraft of the regional ceilings are not closed. The president of Isde Veneto, Vincenzo Cordiano, said that "the analysis of food of the Veneto Region have been published without indicating the point at which they were executed drawings, creating confusion." For this, he added, "epidemiological studies are required well-made, as confirmed by the consultants of the public prosecutor of Vicenza, in the process in the course of the Miteni in Trissino for the tenth anniversary of the spill in the aquifer of production waste". To Cordiano, "the regional plan of health control can not be considered as such since it is part of the 60% of the 70.000 guests and excludes the subjects under 10 and over 65 years, pregnant women and newborns."

In this way, he added, "you run the risk of a huge waste of resources without being really protected the groups most at risk of the potential toxic effects of endocrine disrupters". For Isde the limits of 100 ng/l for all Pfas expected in Europe in the preliminary agreement on the directive waters "are very high". Cordiano has observed that "you only need one nanogram per litre in the water of Pfoa (perfluorooctanoic acid), one of the molecules more toxic, to reach in the blood, in a matter of a couple of years, the concentrations of potentially toxic species for infants, pregnant and elderly".

"The Republic will fight always in defense of the freedom of information, to its readers and to all those who have at heart the principles of democracy and civil coexistence"
